Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Passes Inglourious Basterds To Become Tarantino’s Second-Biggest Movie

Quentin Tarantino’s newest movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, will go down as one of his most successful at the box office. After another weekend in theatres, the movie has now made $136.9 million in the United States and Canada and $195.5 million from foreign markets. Globally, the period movie has now pulled in $329.4 million to become Tarantino’s second-biggest movie ever.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood passes 2009’s Inglourious Basterds ($321.5 million) to become Taraninto’s second-biggest movie, only behind Django Unchained ($425.4 million).

Tarantino’s ninth movie, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as an actor and his stunt double in 1969 Hollywood. Margot Robbie appears as Sharon Tate, while a long list of famous people have roles including Luke Perry, who passed away in March.

GameSpot’s 9/10 Once Upon A Time In Hollywood review said, “It succeeds immensely at being a fairy tale–a recounting of a time and place, an attempt to capture the essence of Hollywood’s golden age, one that came to an end in 1969–but, maybe for Tarantino, never really ended at all.”

Sony Made A “Tragic Mistake” With Spider-Man MCU Split, Avengers Director Says

Spider-Man is apparently officially out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now the directors of the latest Avengers movies have spoken about the decision. Speaking to the Toronto Sun, directors Anthony and Joe Russo commented on one of the biggest off-screen superhero movie storylines of 2019.

Anthony Russo commented that the “marriage” between Sony–which holds the movie rights to Spider-Man–and Disney was not built to last.

“We had a wonderful experience with that and I think audiences really appreciated that marriage. But we know how hard that marriage was to make in the first place, so the fact that the marriage fell apart isn’t really that surprising to me and Joe,” he said.

Anthony Russo added that is was an “extremely long and hard process” to get Spider-Man into the MCU in Captain America: Civil War, which was his first appearance. Spider-Man would go on to appear in the MCU movies Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame, as well as his own movies Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Joe Russo, meanwhile, said the relationship between Disney and Sony was “a tenuous, fraught union throughout the whole process.” Marvel boss Kevin Feige was at the heart of the Spider-Man deal, and he was also working with Sony as a producer on their Spider-Man movies. That won’t happen in the future, however, and Joe Russo thinks it is a “tragic mistake” on Sony’s part.

“But, I will say, stepping back and trying to be objective as possible, that I think it’s a tragic mistake on Sony’s part to think that they can replicate Kevin’s penchant for telling incredible stories and the amazing success he has had over the years. I think it’s a big mistake,” he said.

Feige previously talked about the break-up between Marvel and Sony, saying, “We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”

Even with Spider-Man no longer in the MCU, Disney will continue to benefit from Spider-Man as it currently receives 100% of merchandise sales from Spider-Man.

In other news, just this weekend, Feige revealed a never-before-seen Iron Man deleted scene that references Spider-Man and X-Men, suggesting Marvel wanted them in the MCU from the beginning.

A Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scene From Iron Man References Spider-Man And X-Men

A newly revealed deleted scene from 2008’s Iron Man, the first Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 1 movie, has been revealed–and it seems to contain references to X-Men and Spider-Man.

At the Saturn Awards this weekend, Marvel boss Kevin Feige shared a never-before-seen post-credits scene from the original Iron Man that he said he never intended to show to anyone outside of Marvel.

“I’m about to show you a deleted scene that has never been seen by anyone before right now,” Feige said. The scene shows Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) speaking to Tony Stark about the Avenger Initiative and how he’s dealing with “gamma accidents, radioactive bug bites, and assorted mutants.” No doubt these are references to Spider-Man and X-Men.

The implication here is that Marvel was interested in having Spider-Man and X-Men become part of the MCU, all the way back at the beginning. That didn’t come to fruition completely. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man appeared in multiple MCU movies, but he’s out of the MCU now because Marvel, which is owned by Disney, and Spider-Man movie rights owner Sony couldn’t come to terms.

As for X-Men, Disney acquired the franchise when it purchased the majority of Fox’s entertainment assets. However, there are no plans as of yet for the X-Men to join the MCU, though Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds has teased that Deadpool may join the MCU.

The actual post-credits scene from Iron Man cuts off when Fury talks says, “I’m here to talk to you about the Avenger Initiative.”

Borderlands 3 Golden Chest Guide: How To Get Golden Keys And Shift Codes

When you first arrive at Sanctuary in Borderlands 3, you’ll notice a locked Golden Chest. You might wonder how to open it for a moment but inevitably settle on the hope that the answer to that question will be revealed to you later on. No such luck! You can only open this mysterious Golden Chest with a Golden Key, and can only get these through a few specific methods.

The first method is by getting it through pre-ordering Borderlands 3, which earns you five Golden Keys. The second method involves obtaining Shift Codes that you can redeem for a chance to receive some Golden Keys. These have historically been distributed by Gearbox via newsletters and social media channels. You can plug Shift Codes into the Shift Code section in the main menu or the Borderlands VIP site. Speaking of which, you can also get Golden Keys by using Borderlands VIP points.

The other course of action you can take for Golden Keys is to bank on the third method, which is to wait for any of the upcoming free content updates, such as the Halloween-themed Bloody Harvest event in October. For a full breakdown of that content, be sure to read our article explaining all the post-release DLC.

In our Borderlands 3 review, author Jordan Ramee gave the game an 8/10 and said, “Borderlands 3 has a few stumbling blocks when it comes to bosses, but these fights are overshadowed by the game’s rewarding gunplay and over-the-top humor. The game’s character-driven narrative acts as a satisfying finale for the loot-shooter franchise, and the new mechanics and features–especially the reworked skill trees and weapon manufacturer effects–give you plenty of agency in how you want to play through it. If you’ve never been a fan of the franchise, it’s unlikely Borderlands 3 does enough things differently to change your mind, as the game best excels at continuing what the series has always done: deliver a humorous tall tale of misfits looting and shooting their way to heroism.”

Borderlands 3 Chest Guide: How To Open Locked Typhon Treasure

As you progress through Borderlands 3, you might find chests marked with a “T” symbol. These are what the game calls Typhon Dead Drops and they’re linked to one of the major challenges you can complete in the game involving audio logs left behind by the first Vault Hunter, Typhon de Leon. You might’ve encountered a few of these in Pandora during the opening hours of the game and probably spent five minutes flailing about in frustration figuring out how to unlock it.

To open these chests, you need to find all of the logs left behind by Typhon de Leon in the map you’re currently in. While you might be thinking, “Oh no! I have to figure out where all of these tedious collectibles are?” Don’t worry, the log locations are clearly marked on the map, sparing you the difficulty of having to find them completely blind. And once you’ve acquired all three, the location of the Typhon Dead Drop will be revealed to you on the map.

No Caption Provided

There’s typically one Typhon Dead Drop per open area map, so try taking the time to seek out the logs to nab yourself some solid loot. It’s also worth finding and listening to these logs because they actually include details that have ramifications on what you discover later on in the story. Definitely take the time to do it to better enjoy the twists and turns of the game’s more potent revelations.
